Please note that this seminar is advertised to be held on Thursday, 24 November 2016 in the hard copy spring programme and will now be held on Wednesday, 16 November 2016.

The bail consideration for children requires the application of the objectives and principles of the Young Offenders Act 1994. Bail conditions can be categorised as protective or non-protective conditions. Protective conditions are specific to a person(s) or category of person while non-protective conditions are general in nature.

Under the Bail Act 1982, breach of a protective condition gives rise to far more serious consequences than a breach of non-protective conditions because it is both ‘an offence’ and ‘a serious offence’ which in combination with another serious offence gives rise to the need to show exceptional reasons for bail. Therefore, whether the circumstances support a protective condition requires careful consideration and is examined in this informative seminar by his Honour Judge Denis Reynolds by reference to practical examples.
